Comments on the Section “Enforcement Procedures”

Last Updated: March 9, 2018 at 3:14 pm


  1. The 6x office is going to be critical and should not only consist of administrators. This will prevent possible abuse of power and punishment of faculty/students by supervisors, since dismissal is a possible sanction.
    It is unclear how the authority will appeal a sanction particularly if it is a dismissal. Can you really fire a tenured faculty member based on an allegation that is investigated?

  2. Possible sanctions are not outlined. Would all breaches of this policy be met with dismissal? How does a direct breach compare with a non-disclosed but permissible relationship?
